Let the beauty of what you love be what you do
What's more satisfying than receiving handmade stuff made by your friends around the world? I'm the happiest person when I receive a handmade gift, whether its a birthday present or a swap. And recently I received two of them.
Agnes from Smurfing Time has given these beautiful handmade stuffs on my birthday. Well, she really didn't tell me what she's been up to, regarding we chat or talk over the phone almost everyday. It came as a happy surprise to me..:). The tote bag came with a lil coin pouch which is too cute!!. I love the way she did the patchwork and hand quilting the bag.
She used handwoven cotton for the black an white one. I remember we bought the fabric together in a madness of beautiful handwoven cotton fabric shop, Nalli, in Mumbai's Oberoi Mall..well, I certainly happy cos I didn't buy this particular fabric (which I should have, actually -_-)
and she made me this pretty wall hanging, which now beautifully gracing my wall :)
And the second one, I received this pretty Zipper Tote Bag made by Enno from Hayano Handmade as our Friendly Swap . I simply love it. It such a pretty colour and the tote has pleats on it!!. The fabric is cute and it's soft. I love the polkadots lining too..it makes the tote more cheerful. and the zipper will surely make my stuff safely tucked inside :)
don't you just love the ms. foxy fabric??

New favorite tote
Now I have 2 favourite totes to carry around and no more paying plastic carry bag when I visited the mall.
Thanks a lot girls...
